Around 20 cars with Estonian number plates stand on the side of Tanhuantie in Kontula, Helsinki on an ordinary weekday, accounting for around a quarter of the cars parked on the street. The reason for the high number of Estonian cars is VVO's building, where several flats are rented by groups of Estonian workmen with jobs in Finland.

On the basis of casual observation, the number of Estonian number plates has rocketed in the capital region in recent years.
